    Verse 1
    Hail to the Lord's Anointed,
    Great David's greater Son!
    Hail, in the time appointed,
    His reign on earth begun!
    He comes to break oppression,
    To set the captive free;
    To take away transgression,
    And rule in equity

    Verse 2
    Arabs ? the nomadic race
    Shall bow themselves to Him;
    Strangers from Ethiopia
    Shall seek His glory bright;
    Ships on the high seas shall meet,
    All offering their worship,
    Bringing treasures of the seas
    To worship before Him

    Verse 3
    Kings shall fall down before Him,
    And gold and incense bring;
    All nations shall adore Him,
    His praise all people sing;
    With offerings of devotion,
    Ships from the aisles shall meet
    To pour the wealth of ocean
    In tribute at His feet

    Verse 4
    To Him shall prayer unceasing,
    And daily vows ascend;
    His kingdom without end:
    The mountain dews shall nourish
    A seed in weakness sown,
    Whose fruit shall spread, and flourish,
    And shake like Lebanon
